Fond in the memories of older local residents are the restaurants, some on land and others on the lake. They included
Sid-Mar’s, Bruning’s, Swanson’s, Fontana’s, Fitzgerald’s, My-O-My, Grover’s, Maggie and
Smitty, Barts, Hong Kong, Papa Roselli’s, Rest-A-While, Joe Petrossi’s, and the White House. They are all gone
now. Hurricane Katrina destroyed the last of them, Sid-Mar’s and Bruning’s.
1937 advertisement proclaims "Sea Foods of All Kinds" at Grover's Place in "East End -- Jefferson Parish".
We now refer to the area as "West End" (the western boundary of Orleans Parish).
